"Refreshing. . . . A perfect birthday book for a toddler!" — School Library Journal (starred review)

What’s better than getting a brand-new toy as a birthday gift? Playing with the box it came in! Climb in for a flight across the ocean, a jaunt on a sailing ship, some sledding down a slippery slope, and a brief stint as a robot. Good thing the toy pup that came inside the box is happy to come along for the ride! Leslie Patricelli draws from the well of parental wit and wisdom for another adventure starring everyone’s favorite baby character.

Praise For The Birthday Box (Leslie Patricelli board books)

Using, appealingly smudged colors and very simple, boldly outlined shapes, [Patricelli] depicts a diaper-clad child.

Babies will relate to the bright colors, clear drawings, and toddler-proven activities.
